Aqua® Products Trials in Shrimp Farming - Part 3

Updated: Mar 5, 2023

Information from a study concluded by Red Barn Group Research & Development Teams on shrimp diseases and culture technology.

Growing State Experiment 2 (30 days)

Location: Surat Thani, Thailand.

Aqua® Line Cationic Compensators, Aquaculture Premium Line.

The Results

A higher Survival Rate in the trial group fed with added Aqua® CaLCIUM, Aqua® MgNESIUM, Aqua® kPOTASSIUM, and Aqua® BOOSTER (TREATMENT 1); shows to be better than the CONTROL GROUP and TREATMENT 2 (fed with commercial Calcium and Magnesium).

The Survival Rate in the TREATMENT 1 was 12.5% higher compared to the CONTROL GROUP and 71% higher compared with TREATMENT 2.

The Total Biomass in TREATMENT 1 was 8% higher compared with the CONTROL and 110% higher compared with TREATMENT 2.

Based on the results, we advise using the AQUA® line of products by Red Barn Group with shrimp feed during the growing phase of the animals to increase the survival rate and improve biomass.


Aqua® CaLCIUM (35% Ca) + Vitamin C + Amino acids

Aqua® MgNESIUM (35% Mg) + Vitamin C + Amino acids

Aqua® kPOTASSIUM (35% K) + Vitamin C + Amino acids

Aqua® BOOSTER: Cocktail of Different Organic acids

Minerals, such as vitamins, do not provide energy to the body but have important regulatory functions in addition to their plastic function as they are part of the structure of many tissues.

Nutrient minerals are essential elements for the body as structural components and regulators of body processes that cannot be synthesized and must be part of a daily diet.

The Aqua® line of cationic correctors, focusing on production, enable catatonically compensating the shrimp and its medium.


  • 6 net cages (1m x 1m x 1m) floating in a reservoir with untreated seawater (C Pond).

  • Stock 15 L. Vannamei (15g) per cage

  • Feeding ad libitum, 3g 3 times daily (08.00, 12.00, 17.00 h)


Cage 1-2: fed with standard commercial pellets. No bio supplements used.


Cages 3-4: fed with standard commercial pellets, PLUS: 5ml Aqua® CaLCIUM, 5ml Aqua® MgNESIUM, 5ml Aqua® kPOTASSIUM, and 15ml Aqua® BOOSTER per KG of feed.


Cage 5-6: fed with standard commercial pellets PLUS: 5ml of commercial Calcium and 5ml of commercial Magnesium per KG of feed.


  • Determine BW, SR, and phenol oxidase at the end of the experiment.

  • Determine BW (Bodyweight), SR (Survival rate), SD (Standard Deviation), and FCR (Feed Conversion rate) after a mo
